explains. >> wolf, this is the sadie may room of the baltimore art. she was a well-known donor, a patron of the arts in baltimore. she lent a painting to this museum many decades ago. in 1951 that painting was stolen from this museum, the circumstances around that are not clear. but it made its way somehow from 1951 to a flea market in west virginia a couple of years ago where it was sold for $7 where it was actually bought at a flea market with just some other kind of trin kwets in a box. it is worth up to or possibly over $100,000. and we're here with the director of the baltimore museum of art. can you tell us how you think it made its way from being stolen here in 1951 to being sold in west virginia at a flea market. >> it's a bigamist ri. of course we may never know the course of the painting. we didn't have computers, we didn't have digital images. things were recorded by hand on index cards, things were mimeographed or carbon paper. very different from how we record information today. so we'll be very lucky, i think, to find out the whole story. >> well, good luck in trying to fin

in baltimore. but romney continues his push on national securityish shies at an event at a military college in pennsylvania tomorrow. that is a state where he is trailing the president according to recent polls. but it's one the campaign thinks it could put into play, wolf. >> why do they think that? the polls have been very lopsided in pennsylvania not just recently but for weeks and weeks. >> they've looked at that state for some time. they think it's something they could put in play. obviously they know it would be an uphill battle because in recent elections that state has been pretty solidly blue. but, wolf, i have to tell you even though these recent battleground polls have shown romney falling behind in places like ohio and florida, if you look at the attitude of the campaign, they are showing no worry, no concern. they are confident they will make up ground during the debates and this will still be a tight election come election day. >> still plenty of time to go. three debates. a lot can clearly happen. i haven't seen the romney folks put a lot of money in advertising in pennsylvan
growing up, your parents were both teachers down in the baltimore area. in the public system, and did go to public school? >> no, i went to private school. >> steve: because your mother said? >> my mother said, i teach in the public city schools, so he's not going there. >> brian: tell me about you and this character. divorced, looks like. >> well, we don't start that way. but kind of not halfway through the movie, early on you get to see viola davis, who plays my wife in the film, very early on makes a comment when she gets a text from the first black stepford wife. there is tension right away. but i play her husband and the film is about two parents, one of whom is a teach and she plays a teach. it's about them trying to start a charter cool together. each one has a child in third grade. so each of us is struggling in different ways with how to best deal with what's best for our children. >> gretchen: what message do you want people to take away from this movie? >> i think more than anything else, i want people to feel it's possible for them to make a difference in their own children's
to fund that gap. host: baltimore on the democratic line, jay. caller: jerry, actually. thank you, c-span, and i really love your show. it's nice to be built to voice our opinion. my question is about qe-3. where is he getting $40 billion a month to purchase mortgage backed securities? if he has the power to do that, we cannotderstand why do this for something that is actually going to be tangible, like roads and bridges. everybody says that, but our transportation infrastructure is no longer what it takes to get stuff done quickly. the hours that dispense stuck in traffic, idling with gas at $4 a gallon will not help the situation. can you speak to where this $40 will come from?h host: referring to the federal reserve. guest: gao is at an early printed it from looking at the federal reserve pose a monetary policy activity. such as quantitative easing. we don't have a position on that because we are not able to look at that. host: is there any organization oversight of the federal reserve's monetary policy, any independent agency doing reviews? guest: not that i'm aware of. have thet

me. host and that social media includes our phone calls. bruce, baltimore, good morning, independent line, thank you for waiting. caller: how you doing, good morning. i watched the democratic convention and you also speak about how obama captured bin laden and all the praise of how senator obama did such a great job during the war and so forth. i think the credit should go to george bush. george bush is the one that set up all these ways of catching bin laden, setting up going to war in iraq. but all the democrats, all they are like perform colmes, they want to give obama all the credit for all the polices george bush set. host: thank you bruce. allen colmes. guest: i think to some extent you're right. i think the end of the iraq war, for example, was already in play when obama took office and in fact president obama kept many of the bush national security people around him like robert gates, the secretary of defense, at the beginning of his administration. so to some extent, you've actually got a point. but in terms of bin laden, you know, there's a clip of george w. bush at one poi
of the aisle hope the refs lockout ends soon. this after a disputed field goal gave the baltimore raven a one-point win over the patriots and a series of botched calls and misapplied rules that have driven coaches, players and fans crazy. all this because of a labor dispute between the nfl and its regular referees that began when the league locked out the refs in june. the referees want more money, asking for more than the nfl's offer to increase their average salaries from $149,000 a year to $189,000. compare that to the median nfl player's salary, $770,000 a year. it's important to remember the average nfl playing career is only three and a half years. and most of the refs have other careers. so these aren't full-time jobs for them. the nfl wants to make the refs full-time and to add more refs so the average referee would make less money. the league also wants to move them from a pension systeto a 401(k). but in the context of a business that brings in $9.5 billion a year, it seems relatively solvable. red cashin, an nfl referee for 25 years through two super bowls doesn't blame the replace

lines that has often invited aggression. if it were drawn in the 1930 baltimore, world war ii might the been avoided -- 1930's, world war ii might have been avoided. the first gulf war might have been avoided. clear, red lines will also work with iran. earlier this year, they threatened to close the strait. the united states drew a clear, red line. iran backed off. different lines can be drawn in the i iranian nuclear program. but to be credible, a line must be drawn first and foremost in one vital part of their program -- on their efforts to enrich uranium. let me explain why. any bomb consists of an explosive material and a mechanism to ignite it. the simplest example is fuse.der in and a you light the fuse and set off the gunpowder. the gunpowder is enriched uranium in regards to iran's nuclear program. the fuse is a detonator. for iran, amassing enough uranium is far more difficult than producing a nuclear fuse. for a country like iran, it takes many, many years to enrich uranium for a bomb. that requires thousands of center fuses spinning in tandem in big industrial plants. tho
